Boston Calling Music Festival Lineup Announced

Boston Calling’s multi-genre music festival has announced its 2017 lineup, with some big name headliners throughout the music industry closing out each night.

Major Lazer (2013), Solange (2013) and Tegan and Sara (2014) have all appeared on the festival bill in the past.
Various ticket levels can be purchased for the event. General admission single day tickets cost $99, VIP $199 and 3-day general admission passes cost $269, VIP $529. Platinum VIP passes will run between $599-$999. Fans can also inquire about 12-50 person skybox lounges that are available.
